Indicators

The objective of the dashboard on EU youth indicators is to provide a quick and comprehensive cross-sectoral view of the economic and social situation of young people in the EU. The dashboard is the result of the extensive contributions and successful deliberations of the Expert Group on EU Youth Indicators and is presented in a Commission Staff Working Document on EU Indicators in the Field of Youth released in 2011.

 

The dashboard is regularly updated and revised, to ensure that the indicators properly reflect the changing realities of the situation of young people. The indicators presented here are based on data from Eurostat. The complete list of youth indicators and most recent available data - including those from other sources - is available here (updated July 2012).
